  • ‘Faux’ Male Feminists Draw Ire in Hollywood

    NYT ^ | 9-30-17 | MONICA CORCORAN HAREL
    In the post, Ms. Cole, a film producer, said that Mr. Whedon “hid multiple affairs” with “his actresses, co-workers, fans and friends” during their 16-year marriage. His explanation for why he had so many female friends, she said, was that “his mother raised him as a feminist.” Moreover, Ms. Cole called out his “hypocrisy” for “preaching feminist ideals” while using their marriage as a “shield” to commit adultery. In essence, she branded Mr. Whedon, the director of the coming “Justice League” superhero film, a fake male feminist. It’s a label that appears to be gaining cultural currency, especially in the...

    Glamour ^ | Reese Witherspoon
    There was a Columbia University study that concluded that a woman with ambitious traits seemed selfish and less worthy of being hired than a man with the same traits, which made me wonder...But to be honest, in the past two years, there have also been days when I’ve seen what’s playing out in the news for women and felt completely hopeless. I get defeated when I see news that major corporations are paying top male executives significantly more than top female executives, or that women are marching for the same rights they were marching for 45 years ago. It definitely...

Most are pretty good at hiding it, having been taught to do so since childhood...Case in point: period jokes.

  • James Cameron Calls ‘Wonder Woman’ a ‘Step Backwards’ for Female Protagonists

    Variety ^ | August 24, 2017 | Matt Fernandez
    “Wonder Woman” may have received overwhelmingly positives notices, was a box office behemoth, and is even getting an Oscar push from Warner Bros., but it has one high-profile critic. In an interview with the Guardian, James Cameron took on a different tone, taking aim at the way the iconic superhero, played by Gal Gadot, was portrayed. “All of the self-congratulatory back-patting Hollywood’s been doing over ‘Wonder Woman’ has been so misguided,” he told the outlet in an interview to promote the “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” re-release. “She’s an objectified icon, and it’s just male Hollywood doing the same old thing!”...

    We’re now more likely to tell our daughters they can be anything they want to be — an astronaut and a mother, a tomboy and a girlie girl. But we don’t do the same for our sons. Even as we’ve given girls more choices for the roles they play, boys’ worlds are still confined, social scientists say. They’re discouraged from having interests that are considered feminine. They’re told to be tough at all costs, or else to tamp down their so-called boy energy. If we want to create an equitable society, one in which everyone can thrive, we need to...

    The College Fix ^ | 05/30/2017 | Toni Airaksinen
    ‘Binary and absolute differences’ are ‘exploitative’ A feminist academic affiliated with the University of Arizona has invented a new theory of “intersectional quantum physics,” and told the world about it in a journal published by Duke University Press. Whitney Stark argues in support of “combining intersectionality and quantum physics” to better understand “marginalized people” and to create “safer spaces” for them, in the latest issue of The Minnesota Review. Because traditional quantum physics theory has influenced humanity’s understanding of the world, it has also helped lend credence to the ongoing regime of racism, sexism and classism that hurts minorities, Stark...

    Feminist mom, Leah McLaren has two sons who are your typical rough and tumble young boys. McLaren was offended by her youngest son who is only 3 years old after he rejected ‘girlish’ things and vows to turn him into a ‘proud princess whether he likes it or not’. Liberalism is indeed a mental disorder. Leah McLaren wrote the following article on the Canadian site The Globe and Mail: The other day I was sitting in the park with James, 3, when I picked a dandelion and handed it to him as a present. “No way, Mummy,” he said, pushing...

Not necessarily a job for Superman, who nonetheless provides a still timely lesson on bullying.”

    Thinx boss Miki Agrawal wanted to break taboos about the female body. According to some employees, she went too far.Miki Agrawal, the co-founder of Thinx — a company that makes “period underwear” — doesn’t think much of boundaries. “I just love the taboo space,” she told New York last year, of her mission to (profitably) destigmatize menstruation. And in a promotional video for the product, she said, “My favorite thing to talk about are the things you’re not supposed to talk about.” According to a complaint filed late last week by a former employee (and echoed in interviews with multiple...

    Gloria Steinem isn’t it high time to remind The Sisterhood that feminism no longer protects women but is actually aiding and abetting the Muslim misogynists who oppress them Thank God for UN Watch, the organization which routinely roots out the institutionalized hypocrisies of the world’s largest bureaucracy while most of us just gripe about the UN when something comes along to remind us it’s still out there.

    Feminist virtue-signalling is out of control The Women's March on Washington is still being touted as one of the two next big waves in grassroots organizing (the other is burning down college campuses). But if the Women's March organizers want to keep their numbers up, they're going to have to find a way to make their nasty, rude, and racist "intersectional" politics more palatable than this: "Women's March on Washington: To White Women Who Were Allowed To Resist While We Survived Passive Racism."

    At the time of the Roe v. Wade decision, I was a college student — an anti-war, mother-earth, feminist, hippie college student. That particular January I was taking a semester off, living in the D.C. area and volunteering at the feminist “underground newspaper” Off Our Backs. As you’d guess, I was strongly in favor of legalizing abortion. The bumper sticker on my car read, “Don’t labor under a misconception; legalize abortion.” The first issue of Off Our Backs after the Roe decision included one of my movie reviews, and also an essay by another member of the collective criticizing the...

    The day after Donald Trump took the oath of office to become the forty-fifth President of the United States, radical liberal feminazis took to the streets of Washington D.C. and put on a disgusting display of hedonism and hate. What was billed as the “Women’s March on Washington” quickly devolved into what any sound-minded political observer knew it would, and the worst of the American left was on unhinged display for all the world to see. Clueless to the notion that their unseemly words and deeds were instrumental in Mr. Trump winning the White House and conservative candidates across the...

    It’s the pro-choicers who are engaging in revisionist history. Susan B. Anthony recently made a surprise appearance in a Saturday Night Live skit, shocking the admiring young women touring her Rochester, N.Y., home by blurting out, “Abortion is murder!” Saturday Night Live tried to make a joke about this feminist icon’s pro-life views, but the joke is really on them: Susan B. Anthony, like many of our great feminist foremothers, really was against abortion. Early feminists opposed abortion because it took human life, because women were pressured by economics and by male partners to do something they didn’t want to...
